KttJE EIGHT THE PAMPA DAILY NEWS, Pampa, Texas JUNE 22, 1936. Activities of Kiwanians for 1936 Planned WASHINGTON. June 24. </P>— Texas Kiwanians attending the 20th amml convention of Kiwanis Tnter- ni^Lloal here planned today for 1936 agricultural and community activities. More than 1,058 clubs in the United States and Canada are engaged in agricultural work and in Texas 48 are engaged in such activities. The following were announced ns members of the agriculture committee in the Texas-Oklahoma district". J. I. Moore of Abilene, chairman; E. E. Clark of Sherman, Ernest Symcox of Cordell, Okla.; Louis Lindsay of Okeen. Oklo.: and C. S. Bush of Pauls Valley, Okla. Agricultural activities which Kiwanis clubs will carry on the coming year include plans for diversified farming and advocacy of consumption of local, home-grown products. Rural groups will be brought together to discuss land use planning and other farm problems. Other work will be the promotion of farm institutes and scientific projects dairying and pure-bred stock raising, sponsoring grain and stock shows, county fairs and 4-H boys and girls club shows. In their community work, clubs were urged to undertake safety campaigns, study traffic codes, obtain adequate examinations for drivers' licenses, develop safety propaganda and erect danger and warning signs. "In 1935 there were 37.000 deaths in the United States from automobile accidents, including 1.885 in Texas. said Victor Rnndel, of Huntsville. Tex., chairman of the public affairs committee. Among members of this committee to assist in safety work are: Oscar R. Burden oi Wichita Palls and Dr. L. W. Newton of Denton. i (Continued From Page 1) speculators wore his associates. With another syndicate, they were credited with buying and selling half the stocks turned over on the New York stock exchange in days of huge volume. He was reported to have made as much as $10,000.000 on single deals. But the self-styled "cash grain merchant" disclosed nothing concerning stories that lie and his col- legues made $10,000,000 in Baldwin Locomotive stock in 1927, and from $18,000,000 to $35,000,000 in early 1929 in Montgomery Ward. But he did tell a senate banking committee, investigating the market in 1933 that he and friends shared $12 000,000 from Consolidated Oil securities deals. His losses in the aftermath of the market crash were supposed to have compared with his previous gains, but he was reported to have cushioned them and to have returned —in the role of "bear" instead of his traditonal role of "bull"—to the grain pits to recoil)). Cutten preferred obscurity to wide renown. He planned his moves in a small, dark office near the board of trade. His name did not appear .on the door. ' He and his wife shunned society, contributed to nurseries, orphanages and other charities without fanfare. They were childless.

A number of persons have been indicted in Tennessee on charges of conspiracy in connection with alleged shipment of gasoline into the state billed as kerosene, thereby evading the gasoline tax. "Our contention is that regardless of whether Taylor was in Tennessee at the time of the alleged offenses," Norman said, presenting Tennessee's case, "after- he voluntarily returned and submitted to the jurisdiction of Tennessee courts he became a fugitive from justice and is subject to jurisdiction." He cited the Luke L=a case in support of his contention. Lea, a newspaper publisher and Tennessee political leader, was extradited to North Carolina, Norman said. Norman said Taylor gave $10,000 bond and then returned to Texas, fcrfeiting the bond. Sayers cited various Texas judicial opinions in support of his contention Taylor could not be extradited. "Taylor didn't know anything about his rights," Sayers said. "He consulted some lawyers and obtained bad advice. They informed him he could be extradited and taken back to Tennessee in chains. He was terrified and went back. "But that return did not constitute voluntary waiver of rights guaranteed under the Texas constitution." Woodul interjected that "nobody forced him to go back to Tennessee," and "Tennessee didn't pick hit, lawyers."

(/H)—Hesitancy on the part of potential buyers distinguished wheat dealings late today, and as a rule prices pivoted at around yesterday's close. Expansion of the domestic- flour trade was a bullish factor as to wheat. On the other hand, Canadian reports said American ^n'lls have been good purchasers of Canadian wheat of late, and this was construed as bearish on domestic what values.

He urged, too, a strong plank declaring labor's right to organize and bargain collectively and a long list of other planks which included: High wages and adequate annual income for workers' preservation of free speech, press and assembly; continuation of a social security program; ratification of the pending child labor amendment to the constitution; more restrictive immigration legislation; approval of the Wagner housing act and deportation of all aliens who advocate revolution and violent overthrow of the American political and social order. Edward A. O'Neal, president' of the American farm bureau federation, and L. J. Taber, master of the national grange, presented recommendations of their groups for farm aid. The recommendations of the two groups differed sharply at several points. The farm bureau urged the endorsement of crop production control a permanent system of commodity loans and, thirdly, the maintenance of a "well rounded practical soil conservation and land utilization program." Both farm organizations demanded recognition of the principle of price parity between the products of agriculture and industry in the domestic market. However, the grange omitted reference to production control and placed emphasis upon a soil conservation program. Whereas the farm bureau endorsed the administration reciprocal trade agreements for expansion of foreign markets, the grange asked for revision of the reciprocal treaty act to require senate ratification of agreements and to repeal the unconditional most favored nation clause, by which concessions of a single bi-lateral treaty are extended other nations. The farm bureau asked for federal control or regulation of monopolies. Both groups recommended 1'ur- l ther maintenance and expansion of rural credit facilities, aid to cooperative marketing associations, continued federal and state support for efficient and low cost transportation. Ki-lurn From Centennial Dee Graham has returned from Dallas where he flew his Stinson Monoplane to have it re-licensed following a major overhaul.

They reported it bigger and far more interesting than the World fair. The trip to Dallas was made in two hours and 50 minutes an:l the return, against a strong head wind, in three hours and 15 minutes. -.1^.

Deloford of England in the second round of the all-England tennis championships, 4-6, 6-2, 6-2 6-1. Fred Perry, the defending champion, advanced easily at the expense of K. Chartikavanij of Siam, Perry won at 6-2. 6-2, 6-2. In the women's singles, Fran Hilda Krahwinkel Sperling of Germany and Denmark defeated Patricia Council of Great Britain, 7-5, 6-2. Donald Budge, of California, a semi-finalist last year, gained the third round at the expense of Ian G. Collins. Budge was in rare form in disposing of the former British Davis cup player, 6-2, 6-2, 1. John Van Ryn of Philadelphia hung up a 6-4, 8-6, 6-3, second round victory over Hans Timmer of Holland. Displaying the hardest service seen at Wimbledon since Bill Tilden's amateur days, David Jones, former Columbia University star, gave Wilmer Allison the American champion, the battle of Ills life before losing, 14-12, 6-3, 6-4. The lanky former college star fired 44 service aces in the ninety minute match that drew gasps and cheers from a crowd of 10,000. Allison just shook his head at many of Jones' thunderbolt serves and didn't attempt to reach them. As powerful as his service was, however, Jones delivered a number of double-faults at critical moments which must hurt his chances of upsetting the Texan. George Patrick Hughes, British Davis cup doubles player, defaulted after the third set of his second round match against Harry Cooper. He was leading 6-3, 5-7, 6-2 when he withdrew. Hughes found the heat exhausting and retired to save himself for England's defense of the cup. Gene Mako of Los Angeles defaulted to Christian Boussus of France in • their scheduled second round match. Mako is suffering from an injured right shoulder. However, he said he intends to continue in the double competition with Donald Budge. Jack Crawford, sixth seeded Australian player, trimmed Charles Hare of England, 6-3, 6-2, 8-8. Jean Lestieur of France won on a default by Jacques Brugnon, who retired after the first game of the final set, with Lesweur leading 5-7, 6-3, 4-6, 7-5, 1-0. Mrs. Dorothy Andrus of New York defeated Mrs. K. Bowden of Great Britain, 6-4, 7-5, in a second round match. COLUMN (Continued trom page 1) to go bundle up a. bit to keep warm.
